CAD software has been essential for product development for decades. Engineers use it to digitally create, modify, communicate, and analyze designs – before physical prototyping and manufacturing. Anybody who, sat through mechanical engineering courses knows all that.
But what might surprise you is how much better CAD can do
all these things these days. Here are my picks for the best uses in CAD
software in 2022.
1. Augmented Reality (AR)
Augmented reality, generated from 3D CAD design models, has
uses across the entire product development and deployment process.
In 2020 and beyond engineering Organizations will include
CAD Augmented Reality in the following areas:
· Manufacturing and assembly
2. Real-Time Simulation
I’ve had the opportunity to test drive Creo simulation live,
the version of ANSYS real-time simulation software embedded into the Creo Parametric
modeling environment, and wow! It is easy to learn, easy to use, unbelievably
fast, and powerful changes to the model update the simulation results in
real-time, with no need to re-mesh or re run analyses.
intelligence and machine Learning Come to CAD
We see machine learning and artificial intelligence in many facets of our day – to day world, like internet search, voice and image recognition, smart speakers, self-driving cars, and social media. Machine learning analyzes data sets and uses code to learn from that data. It is already being used in engineering in areas like virtual manufacturing, predictive maintenance, and our focus here: Generative design and topology optimization.
Generative CAD design autonomously iterates concepts for
boundary conditions that we specify, factoring in simulation and even
manufacturing. For example, the system can now make design recommendations
based on your preferred fabrication technique. Since generative design isn’t
constrained by human pre- conceived biases,and has immense computing resources
behind it, it can generate orders of magnitude more concepts with
radical,unexpected shapes and configurations.
4. Additive Manufacturing
Product development organizations have already benefitted
from additive manufacturing with:
· More complex
geometry that can’t be built via traditional subtractive manufacturing methods.
number of components and fasteners,corresponding to lower assembly time.
to rework worn field parts.
5. Working in
multi -CAD Environment
Ideally, your company operates on a unified CAD
platform.However, that often simply isn’t possible. You may have legacy
products developed on a displaced CAD package or acquired business units that
operate in different software. Your partners and vendors may work in a
different CAD system. Multi-CAD capabilities, like those in PTC’s Unite
technology, allow you to increase the range of potential design partners by
allowing you to convert or open native files from another package so, if
changes happen, you can update your files quickly, without worrying about their
